Tiny, delicate little baby
Eyes closed sleeping peacefully
Bundle in a cocoon blanket
A little hand; fist closed
Off to the side
Dark hair that may fall out
Her tiny nose breathes in and out
We talk; she doesn’t stir
Still waiting to her eyes
But she continues to sleep
The newest addition for great grandma

April 9th Prompt: Write about the oldest person you have ever known. Or write about the youngest person you now know.


New Arrival

Small, three and half year stands on tiptoes
Peer into window glass in awe
Holding a care bear for one on other side
Staring in room, mom with baby cradle in arms
A baby sister to play with it
She looks too small to interact
When will I see her close up
Not, yet my grandma saids.
Will see her later when at home
